MEET, THINK, EAT AND DRINK (AND BE MERRY!)
THE SPIRIT OF XMAS AND THE SEASON OF GIVING ABOUND, BUT WHAT’S IT REALLY ALL ABOUT? IS IT ACTUALLY AN ETHICAL TRADITION?
It may be your favourite time of the year or you may totally dread it? Do you relate to Scrooge or Bob Cratchit? Do you love the tradition, the giving, the indulgence, the office parties and the family get togethers? Maybe you just think it is a capitalist passive consumer festival where lonely people feel more lonely than ever, and only wealthy people survive without huge debts? And what is it we are really celebrating? The Nativity or Santa Claus?
Have some fun and and offload. Whether you love it or hate it, let’s face it, it can be a really stressful.
Who knows? You may be able to either cope far better this year, or just chill out and make the most of it. Let’s have some real tidings of comfort and joy at the Christmas themed Gallery Lates.
